A cyclist stopped members of the neo-Nazi group Patriot Front with some well-timed heckling during their march in Washington, DC on Sunday.
Joe Flood mocked the dozens of masked men who had gathered with their placards and upside down American flags to chant racist slogans on the National Mall.
Flood repeatedly interrupted one of the men who was speaking with his comments, telling the group, “Nobody likes you; you were the loser of your high school days; You’re sloppy, you don’t even match, you’re all wearing different kinds of pants, cargo pants are out; “Take back your virginity” and more.
Speaking to MSNBC’s The Rachel Maddow Show Monday, Flood said he made fun of the man for forgetting to speak.
And the insult that struck the speaker the most, he said, was, “You look like General Custer’s illegitimate son.”
“The guy sighed and looked at me. And I thought, “I got you.” I got into your head. Now get out of my town,” Flood recalled.
On Twitter, Flood described the protesters as “just embarrassing” and “cosplay incentives.”
The Southern Poverty Law Center described Patriot Front as a “white nationalist hate group” and “image obsessed organization” that “focuses on theatrical rhetoric and activism that can easily be circulated as propaganda for its local chapters across the country.”
According to the SPLC, his manifesto calls for “the formation of a white ethnic state”.
